Ayers Rock Airport (also known as Connellan Airport) is situated near Yulara, around 463 km (5 hrs drive) away from Alice Springs, Northern Territory, 20 minutes drive from Uluru (Ayers Rock) itself. An average of just under 300,000 passengers per year pass through this airport in the middle of Australia.

The main users of the airport are light aircraft- either charter, scenic flights or private owned aircraft. Qantas and Virgin Commercial Jets also have regular flights into this airport.

Diston Wastewater Technology designed, supplied and installed the wastewater treatment that not only takes the sewage from the facility but also the concentrated waste liquid from the commercial jets.
